A close friend recently described her as “the highly delectable Jane.” Figuring we’d all missed a trick with her, he had no idea that Jane and I had been very close for some time.

I really liked Jane a lot. She was pretty, kind, cute and indeed 'delectable'. Trouble was, when we first met she warned me not to expect anything serious as she was recovering from a recent breakup.

“I understand.” I said, (but I didn’t of course!)

Then she fell for me.

But by then, back home, I had met and fallen for the girl of my dreams.

    Awww... Awww.... I love this. This is the first drabble I read for a long time and I have a big silly grin on my face.... Gosh, too much work, not enough time, not enough writing (well, plenty of writing but not for pleasure). How are you, Neville? and is the lovely Mrs H. well, too? I pray you are all alright.

    And... and... where is everyone?

    Hi Frenchie, and welcome back! Very much welcome back! Everyone seems to be AWOL right now. Drew was away for months, then returned, revitalised, but has been away a while again. I hope he’s OK; he’s our rock! Christopher suddenly disappeared after the US election which appeared to have incensed him, but he got little support on this site as I don’t think politics is really our thing. And you have obviously been working really hard, but not for us 😢.
    Mrs H (Corrine by name... not Jane😊) and I have been fine thanks. It’s hard work as we must help our disabled daughter nearby almost daily with her little ones....

    ...Being in the same bubble as our daughter (Jane!... don’t know how I got away with that... worth a drabble in its own right!) it has been lovely to have been able to watch the 5 and 1year old develop. We’ve both been Pfizered once now, but we’re still obeying the rules and hoping others are too. I can’t think when you were last here, but I’ve been relatively quiet on the drabble front myself although I have rediscovered my mojo recently. Wow! That's tantamount to an essay!

    Oh my, I put myself in your shoes. I have been shielding my son for nearly a year now (he is what NHS calls ''clinically extremely vulnerable''. At the beginning, I gave the carers time off and my other kids had to help and that is not ideal when they only want to play computer games but they are really good to their brother and love him, so I am lucky.
    I hope your daughter is well.

    Sorry to hear of your son’s problems which make life a struggle all round. My own daughter’s fine, except that she has MS and struggles with balance, fatigue and probably most difficult, she is partially sighted (less than 50%). In the past year she has had pendulum swing depression, possibly post natal depression, but who knows right now, there are so many things. But she has lovely children a terrific supportive husband, so we hope time will help.🤞 Fortunately, she is a popular woman and has lots of great friends who support her, but not in person of course right now!🥴
